I can’t believe that it is August. The temperature is currently 84 degrees. The sun is shinning and the humidity is only at 32%. It’s a great day outside.
I have been working on my shawl. I am still knitting with the tart color. This is the Cameo shawl and I am using Madelinetosh sock in the colors tart and farmhouse white with a size 5 needle. I am enjoying knitting this shawl.
I also forgot that I had knitted a prayer cloth. I have been wanting to knit one of these for awhile but forgot about it. It is a cross pattern. I used Plymouth Fantasy Naturelle in color 2754 with a size 7 needle. This knitted up fast and it’s been awhile since I knit any type of cloth.
I did get two skeins of self striping yarn. The first is by Caterpillargreen yarns in the color Skyline. This yarn is 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmire and 10% nylon.
The second is by Quaere Fibre. The color is Patchwork. It is 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. There are 600 yards on this skein. I can’t wait to knit this yarn into a sock.
